Monday 8/28: 

  • ☽ at 26° 51‘ Capricorn ✳ ♆ at 26° 51‘ Pisces | 5:29 AM
  • ☽ ☌ ♇ at 28° 18‘ Capricorn | 7:48 AM
  • ☽ β–» Aquarius | 10:31 AM
  • ☽ at 00° 42‘ Aquarius β–³ β™‚οΈŽ at 00° 42‘ Libra | 11:39 AM
  • Uranus β–» β„ž | 10:38 PM

Monday is a little extra Mondayish with a side of chaos because tonight Uranus will be stationing retrograde, but more on that in a minute.

In general, today blends practicality with intuition, urging you to trust your instincts while verifying facts. Emotions may run high, but discipline will keep you on track. Embrace innovative thinking, but stay grounded and try to value collaboration. 

Back to Uranus. When Uranus stations retrograde, it's like the universe flips a giant cosmic mayhem switch. Known for its sudden shifts and unexpected transformations, Uranus can create waves of external chaos, particularly in the days surrounding its station. During this transition, the energy is intensified, which can lead to heightened unpredictability and disruptions.

Fortunately, after a couple of days it’s mostly background noise. After the initial disruptions, there's a chance to integrate these changes and reflect on them. Ultimately, while this phase can be chaotic, it offers deep insights and transformative growth.

Tuesday 8/29:

  • ☽ at 23° 04‘ Aquarius β–‘ β™… at 23° 04‘ Taurus | 11:04 PM

Tuesday you may have to find a way to balance your personal desires with your responsibilities. It’s possible to both value stability and embrace new opportunities, if you’re willing to put in the effort.

Adaptability will be key, especially when faced with unexpected shifts, so try to stay grounded while also being open to any plot twists.

Wednesday 8/30:

  • ☽ β–» Pisces | 9:56 AM
  • ☽ ☌ β™„ at 03° 34‘ Pisces | 3:32 PM
  • Pisces πŸŒ• Full Moon | 9:35 PM
    • ☽ at 07° 25‘ Pisces ☍ β˜‰ at 07° 25‘ Virgo 

Wednesday, the energy will be building steadily towards the Full Moon in Pisces which is exact at 935 pm eastern.

The Pisces Full Moon offers a powerful moment of emotional depth and practical understanding. It illuminates feelings and increases sensitivity, encouraging introspection and emotional release. 

However, Saturn's influence adds a sobering effect, prompting a realistic look at responsibilities and commitments. This may lead to feelings of restriction, but it also presents a chance for growth.

During this time, you could confront feelings of isolation, but this can lead to greater self-reliance. You'll also become aware of areas where you need more discipline, which is a call for emotional maturity and the setting of healthier boundaries. It's an opportunity to identify and let go of emotional patterns that don't serve you.

Remember, this Full Moon can illuminate any tension between your goals and emotional needs, nudging you to realign your priorities and establish more sustainable balance in your life.

All in all, Sunday is a very Venusian day. The Moon moves into Taurus by 11 am eastern and Venus stations direct at 9:20 pm eastern, maximizing all of the Venus retrograde vibes for one last day.

As Venus stations direct in Leo, there's a renewed emphasis on expressing personal desires, refining individual presentation, and strengthening interpersonal bonds. This period beckons a harmonious blend of Venus's magnetizing essence with Leo's extroverted and individualistic nature. It's a time to reassert one's identity, engage in activities that resonate with the core self, and foster relationships that align with your authentic self and values.

You get all of the forward fiery power of Venus in Leo unencumbered by rethinking and renovating your life and mind until she leaves the Leo stage on October 8.
